There are many possibilities to empty or to refill a drum or a container, from simply tipping over through to the use of mechanical devices which are available on the market. All these solutions involve the danger of spillage, breathe of poisonous vapours, risk of injury by chemical burn or risk of explosion.
A safe and economical solution is to use electric or pneumatic driven drum and container pumps from Lutz. These portable pumps are available in different materials, sealing versions, impeller types and immersion depths. This makes it possible to choose the right pump for the respective application case concerning delivery rate, delivery head and the features of the medium being pumped (thin- or thick-bodied, neutral, aggressive, combustive or not inflammable).
As drive units are available single-phase AC/DC motors, three-phase motors and compressed air motors in different versions. Lutz drum and container pumps are tested and certified according to approved standards and directions; explosion-proof models are in accordance with ATEX directive 94/9/EC, category 1/2. For common liquid groups, e.g. acids, alkalis, mineral oil products or inflammable solvents Lutz offers pre-mounted pump sets with appropriate accessories as complete systems ready for use.
A drum and container pump is consisting of a drive motor and a pump tube. When immersing the pump tube into the drum the liquid directly is coming into contact with the rotating impeller in the pump foot. By means of the centrifugal power the liquid is transferred via the pressure shaft of the pump into the hose set. Filling nozzles are enabling a controlled and safe filling procedure. For starting up there is neither suction, filling or venting necessary – the pump is immediately ready for use.
· Safe and economical liquid transfer from drums and containers
· Contact of skin, eyes and respiratory tract with dangerous material is prevented
· Easy starting up procedure and handling
· Less amount of time and work
· Versatile, universally and low-maintenance
Lutz drum and container pumps are suitable for the transfer of neutral, aggressive and easy inflammable liquids from mobile drums, containers and stationary tanks of different sizes. Available are electric or pneumatic driven motors – also in explosion-proof version – depending on the respective application.
